Overview

Ophthalmologists are doctors that specialize in eye and vision care, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of eye conditions. They also perform eye surgery and can prescribe eyeglasses and/or contact lenses to correct vision issues. Additionally, an ophthalmologist can recognize problems in the eye that aren’t directly related, which can result in a referral to another doctor for treatment. Some ophthalmologists also choose to specialize even further and focus on an area of study that allows them to deal with even more difficult conditions for specific groups of patients.
